Peach and Cucumber Salad with Honey Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing

I know it probably looks like the majority of recipes I post are salads, but it has been such a HOT summer already and a salad is so refreshing on a humid summer day — especially one with a citrus based dressing! And on the plus side it’s peach season. Whatever peaches you have left from not grilling or just having as a snack, try in a salad. They add a sweet and flavorful punch as well as compliment whatever vegetables you’ve also added to your greens.
